About Us

The State of Oregon Research Academy (SORA) provides State of Oregon employees with opportunities to network, build connections for collaboration, and learn more about research, data, and statistics.

SORA hosts regular events such as formal presentations, poster sessions, and social gatherings. SORA is always looking for new ideas and topics!

Currently, SORA has more than 700 members, representing close to 20 agencies across the state. Members include research analysts, financial analysts, economists, database architects, information systems specialists, auditors, managers, legislative staff, and even entomologists!

Membership is free, so join us!

We hope to see you at the next SORA event!
